This event is part of Perth Festival of the Arts

Written and performed by David Colvin and directed by Tom Freeman.

The tragic and comic tale of the greatest bagpiper who ever lived.

Fresh from its sell-out fringe run, Thunderstruck will be performing at Perth Festival of the Arts as part of Scotland's 'Year of Stories' 2022.

“Sensationally epic and brutally intimate”, Thunderstruck is an international award-winning production concerning the legacy and mythology of a Pitlochry bin man, Gordon Duncan, who flew beyond the summit of his art and changed Scottish music forever.
The history, rules and proud traditions of Scotland’s national instrument, so painfully learned and proudly maintained, are torn apart by an unruly, ostentatious, untameable musical talent.

The story of a tortured soul, but are the demons his, or Scotland’s?

Take whatever romantic notions you have of the bagpipes and leave them at the door.

Contains moments of very strong language.
